Before I go any farther, I am posting this from my iPad. I apologize in advance for any inconsistencies with the formatting, spelling, and general wonkiness.
Mr. Aitch and I are house/dog sitting for his brother this week in my hometown. My aunt also lives here so we’ve been spending time with her as well.
On Monday I went a senior center where she leads exercises for the residents. I am embarrassed to admit that I couldn’t keep up with them. These women (including my aunt) are at least 20-30 years older than I am.
Yesterday we went to a craft group. I took my knitting with me and the ladies there wanted to know all about my felted bag since I was working on the one for my sister. They weren’t quite sure how that flat piece of knitting was going to end up as the 3-D bag.
I did finish all the flat knitting and now have to sew the loose squares and side seams before I add the I-cord edging.
The colors are really charcoal and lime green.
The ladies also oohed and awed over my next project: Sheep Carousel Tea Cozy. I hope to get started on that soon.
Here is a picture from the craft group. Unfortunately I didn’t think to take a picture earlier as one of the ladies had already left. So from l to r: my aunt Evelyn, Josephine, Dorothy, and Deo. A lovely group of ladies.
Awww! What a great looking group of crafters. I hope I look that good when I am their age!
It’s the yarn. It sends off lovely little vibes that keep knitters looking young and lovely. 😉 Now…everyone go roll in their stashes… lol
Love the squares for your bag! What a fun day as well!
